Built a box to hold my cooler MLT and arranged it to allow the cooler to tip at a good angle, while keeping it from slipping and falling or tipping all the way over. I made mention of this in a diff thread about how recirculation helped make my brew day more efficient, which was pretty exciting for me, maybe not so much for others But I thought this would be a more appropriate section of the forum, to share my little contraption.

I was originally thinking of making this box into a swingset style, with the A frame and hinges, using some kind of "kick stand" to hold it up/back. This would have been nice, but I think the way I did it was a little easier. The one thing that is still difficult, is lifting the cooler to wedge the 2x4 under the back. Having a hinge would definitely make this easier.
